The Child Analytic Program of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis welcomes you to a series of presentations representing the remarkable scope of child psychoanalysis today.  These discussions will offer us an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the mind and of human development seen through the lens of clinical experience with children and adolescents.  We also will examine the use of film portraying the thinking processes of children.

Dr. Mann will present the complex analysis of a young, engaging adolescent boy struggling with anxiety and self-harming compulsions.  Coping with the conscious interactions as well as the powerful countertransference, contributed to this challenging case.

Our discussant, Spencer Bloch, is a graduate of SFPI, medical director and consultant to Oaks Children's Center, 1973–1987.  His second book on treating and understanding adolescents will be released shortly.
